Birthday Present

14 posts in this topic

Had my favorite birthday present today - the time to go out and do something I enjoy without having to feel guilty about not getting my work done. Back to the grind tomorrow.

All images taken with the Canon 40D. The panoramas were taken with the 100-400L and the river shots were taken with the 17-40L.

Steve and I took a mid-day drive up the Fernberg to the Lookout Tower vista:

After work I headed down the Tomahawk to the Island River. A couple of panoramas while there:

"Manomin"

BD4-1.jpg

"Tammies"

BD3-1.jpg

Finally stopped at the Dunka River just before dark. Used a 4ND neutral density, 100 ISO, manual at f/20 and 13 seconds. NR on and MLU:

"Dunka River 1"

"Dunka River 2"

Enjoy, and thanks again to everyone who wished my a happy birthday!

By the way, the Fernberg Lookout and the Tammies were three photos stitched together, Manomin was four photos stitched together.

"Manomin", and similar spellings, is the Native American word for wild rice.

I knew that it meant wild rice (Ojibwe language), just wondering how the picture was tagged with that title??? I see the wild rice out there, just wondering who knew to call it manoomin is all. Nice picture.

Thanks again, all. Yakfisher, I waited almost 40 minutes for the sun to peek between the clouds to light up that shoreline with the dark clouds in the background. Worth the wait!

Manomin is also my favorite. You have some nice dynamic range with the light hitting the trees and the skies behind them being darker.

    • Hey you guys-you forget I'm an old Alaskan.  I know all I need to know about the dingbat and her famous family. If you are actually accepting her blather as useful intelligence and knowledge than you are as squirrely as she is. Let her just fade away for Pete's sake.
    • Hi Dave.  We have talked about this briefly a year or two ago.  Due to the paranoia factor on this site I and most others aren't here as much.  I do miss guys like you Dave.  I remember the pic of your camper at Itasca so we took a drive through this summer.   I wondered where your spot was.  Man I hope you come out of this alright Dave.  My Uncle had diabetes bad and finally lost the battle.  The docs said change your diet or take the shot.  He said give me the shots.  Well that lasted for many years and his body finally gave in..  He should have changed his diet too.  I took him to a couple of bear baits he wanted to see and he told me his feet were finally giving in.  AND he was a tough guy.   Anyway Dave we all love you and I hope you can persevere....   I am thinking good things for you so you think positive too.....    Barry.    Hope this isn't deleted for one of their paranoid reasons...  If it is deleted I will never be back as many others.   So sad.....
    • It is interesting how people got out so early.  I have done it too.  3 or 4 hits with the spud and it is alright.......  NO it isn't ....  It is manly to talk about getting on the ice first.  Well now that I am older I realize it is stupid talk not manly.  The fishing sales world is just as guilty.  They talk about the first ice fishing being so good.  They actually are hugely responsible for getting stupid people out on thin ice.  The lets make a buck is more important than anything.  ANYTHING!!! 
    • Great pictures.   I'm used to seeing eagles, but those pictures are outstanding. 
    • Didn't I just do that?   Can't you read? 
    • Only if they have a drinking problem and maybe me implants.  That's all the Canadian folks care about....
    • That sounds like a great idea. 
    • I know perfectly well how phishing works.   Typical Liberal thinks anyone who is not toeing the party line is ignorant.    It isn't that hard to phish a fool like podesta.
    • I feel like we were just water skiing not to long ago!  Definitely caught a sun burn for deer season ha.  I'll be doing my fishing at the grocery store for a bit yet.
    • Remember, your fishing for pickerel!!  No such thing as walleye where your fishing
